Last Friday, two teams from Y5 and Y6 participated in a rounders tournament at Langdale Primary School. There they had the opportunity to compete against other local schools and apply the knowledge and skills that they had learnt in their club when competing.
The children all performed brilliantly. The boys’ team, led by their team captain Dan, won two matches and lost two (by a very narrow margin). They showed great competitive spirit and were good sports.
The girls (led by their team captain Lily-May) won three out of four matches and progressed to the semi-finals, which they won. In the final, they played against Bursley Primary School and drew. They were exceptionally excited to come first place and were great sports.
Well done children! You certainly demonstrated how much you have developed this year in our Secret of Success ‘To Compete’. You worked exceptionally hard, were driven and resilient and wanted to do the best that you could.
Eddie: “I liked how we got to play against different school that we didn’t know. Rounders club has helped me to improve my throwing, which I was able to use in the match.”
Dan: “I felt really honoured to be the captain of the rounders team because it gave me the chance to be able to lead a group. “
Lottie: “I really enjoyed playing rounders with my team and competing against the other schools. I thought it helped us to develop our team work.”
Lily-May: “I liked being the captain because everyone made me feel proud of myself and happy. I enjoyed encourage my team on and playing against other schools.”
Amelia: “I really enjoyed going to the rounders as it really helped our team work. We got to meet other school who were kind and encouraged us too.”
